At The Manchester College, the Creative Arts Team aims to equip artists at an early stage in their career with the tools to be resourceful problem solvers, collaborative, self- sufficient and resilient.

Our goal is to enable young people to shape their creative voice by becoming active learners and active creators in Manchester, a City of expanding opportunity in the Creative Industries.

We engage with many of Manchester’s partners in Visual Arts and Design such as Manchester Art Gallery, The Whitworth Art Gallery, HOME as well as studio based makers and practioners. Live briefs are set by Industry experts across a range of specialist areas such as commissions to create, illustration, film, 3D product design, Printmaking, ceramics, photography, painting, jewellery and fashion and textiles

Our learners exhibit widely in Manchester’s vibrant artistic centre, creating pop up exhibitions in all of the trendiest areas across this amazing city.

You will get the opportunity to be part of the unique Future Creative’s project and exhibit your work in the Manchester Art Gallery.

The Level 3 course will give you experience in all areas of Visual Arts across all disciplines. Experimentation and risk taking with materials and processes will push you to develop confidence to generate your own ideas and concepts. You will work towards a final project that will encompass the skills you mastered over the year in a celebratory end of year exhibition, which is visited by some of Manchester’s cultural headliners.
